Default Cable pedal for Gong (or any cymbal)

Recently I've constructed special pedal for my Sabian 26" Gong. Now it is not necessary to turn back and use special stick for playing Gong.
I've used the same approach as for double pedals with cable (http://www.drummerworld.com/forums/s...ad.php?t=32407)

Actually I can produce continuous sound by using just one pedal! )))

Some more pictures demonstrating right side of pedals setup, and I tried to make photo of all 17 pedals...

That is very cool. You could be a one-man percussion section for an orchestra.

Cool,

Quite a pedal setup, looks like you broke in the DW factory and ran off with everything you were able to get your hands on ;o)

Bobrovsky, you are doing some really neat hardware mods. I once made a foot-operated talking drum using bike cable, a foot pedal, a mounting basket and an LP Nada drum. I appreciate the amount of thought and engineering that goes into this stuff.

You must have access to a good tool shop. Do you weld?

I've used cable remote hi-hats Pearl and Maxtone and removed metal rods and tension springs.
I've used also fragment of Pearl tom-holder and Meinl percussion holder for fixation of pedal on Pearl boom stand.
It was very simple.
Even I did not need to drill any holes in pedals or holders.

"LP Nada drum" what is this?

A variation of a talking drum. The head is floating, not fixed to the drum. There are straps connecting the head to the bottom rim. You put the drum under your arm and squeeze, raising the pitch of the drum.

I made a metal basket to hold and mount the drum, then rigged up a bike cable and foot pedal. This shows it in my former set. I like to see people doing cool stuff with their instruments, whether playing or modifying them.
